in a conflict zone, a war zone, in a country where the united states may be very unpopular, people will relate to you as a human being. there will be local cultures of hospitality that take over and effectively protect you. you rely on your fellow human beings to look after you. often, as a foreigner, i am better taken care of by people in many places than if the same people i and interacting with were dealing with locals. as an american? >> it was ok. people are eager to meet an american, even when they are not happy to meet an american. they are polite. there was an occasion where i went to afghanistan to sit with a man who had been a notorious opium trafficker. there was little doubt. he did not want to talk or see me. but it is afghanistan. i am his guest. he has to offer me tea. they spent the whole time complaining about the united states. this was 2002. even though they were very angry, they were going to give me tea. fine. way. most people are friendlier than that. most people invite you home and have a lot want to say. it is as if in many cases people had been thinking about the unite
at an advantage and disadvantage to those other countries including the united states, that it is taking advantage of and finding ways around some of the rules and procedures that exist under the world trade organization and we have to use that mechanism but it doesn't deal with all issues. it isn't clear whether it deals with the currency question. it may be difficult to use wto mechanisms to address some of the things the chinese government is doing through the so-called state owned enterprises to give them an advantage and make it more difficult for outsiders to compete for a share of the market. the point i would make overall is we have to find ways to exert leverage, and we have to pursue an integrated strategy that deals with this full range of issues. i guess since i am thinking of it i have a third point that agrees with jeff to the extent it can be a multilateral effort because i think we share important interests with other and dealing on these issues. >> the final and concluding question tonight will be from garrey wong left teach for china sent to us by e-mail and the question is addre
in order for us to invest in the united states and create jobs. >> we've got some good role models even though this roundtable -- business roundtable doesn't get involved and we don't even great legislators. my expense as a governor is a competitive state, our best teachers on political activist with the labor unions, and then later on george soros. he taught every wealthy individual american you can't afford to sit on the sidelines. and so i say go for it. >> we don't do endorsements either. we have a pack. we're very involved, and last week we launch a retail meets the vote campaign and will probably connect wit with a quar of a million retailers and millions of their employees. not endorsing, not to do that would give them voter guide, encouraging them to be in full. if we're going to address any of the issues, maybe we can get something done everything looks exactly the same. but there's a sense of people of a better understanding of our positions there's a greater likelihood we will get some action on them and that's why we've engaged our membership. >> let's go to questions from t
my life to continue that work is your united states senator. >> moderator: thank you. we hope this debate has subfolders as they ponder their decision and a selection only urge you to vote on election day. what you think our candidates, chris murphy and linda mcmahon and our reporter panel, al terzi, dennis house, keisha grant and mark davis if i could have your attention,e program on manufacturing society in the 21st century here at the institute. i welcome you on behalf of the institute both in the audience and those viewing remotely. i wanted to ask our president, walter isaacson, just to say a few words. it's always dangerous when your boss knows as much or more about the subject matter. >> that is definitely not true and that is why it is a pleasure to have tom here at the aspen institute because the one thing we do know about the issue of manufacturing is how important it is to america's economy and how ridiculous it is to try to think of a great economy that doesn't always have a healthy manufacturing sector. and so, when we were looking at the aspen institute and all t
women. >> you bet. >> don't write over mitt. >> don't write over the next president of the united states. my oldest son. he just graduated. >> give them hell today. >> thanks for coming. we have a lot to be excited about today. we are here on a corner -- [inaudible] i know there are a lot of small business representatives and employees here today. for your efforts and hard work, give them a hand. [applause] president calvin coolage once remarked that the business of america is business. his words are as true today as they were when he said them nearly 100 years ago. small business drives our economy, fuels or communities and feeds our families. [applause] small businesses like ours represent 97.8% of all employers. we employ half of america's work force and create between 60 respect -- 60% and 80% of job growth in the country. we know how very important those jobs numbers are. i imagine you feel like i do. i need my job, and so do our employees. thankfully here at ball we have secure jobs. you will see trucks coming and going from a long hard day any minute now. i can't imagine the stres
.d.'s are coming from the united states, in our most complete engineering schools. that is a recipe for disaster. that is a recipe for disaster. we do not ever talk about it. we're just letting the thing unraveled. what about best new engineering schools, which you will be hearing about in a few days, in dallas, and they have a great school, but guess what -- i asked them onetime how many people they have from china, and this university right here, 2000, added to the top. >> this is an example of how we need to modernize our immigration policy and how we need to change education policy alice well. immigration policy is based on family relationships. it is not based on economic considerations, skills and knowledge. while we need to revitalize education for americans, we need to recognize the extent to which people are coming to america to learn we need to do what we need to do to keep them in america. >> this is our core problem. there trillions of connections in the brain called neurons. they start down at age 6 when they start public school. kids at a school soared like eagles, got college scho
that are investing right here in iowa, right here in the united states of america, rebuilding our manufacturing. [applause] i want to control more of our own energy. you heard last night oil production is up, natural gas production is up. we'vee've also said is got to develop a new source of energy and we've got to be more fisht with our economy. so we raised fuel efficiency on cars so your car will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. we had double the amount of renewable energy we generate from wind and solar and buy fuels. today the united states of america is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. so the question -- so the choice you have -- you heard last night, it's not a choice between oil versus solar or natural gas versus wind. we all agree we got to increase oil production and natural gas production. but the question is whether we build on the progress for the new energy source of the future. i'm not going to keep on giving corporate tax funded welfare to oil companies $4 billion a year when we could use that money to promote wind and solar and long-lastin
the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the a
am running for the united states senate. to change the want leadership in washington. we can change that. that is why i am running for the senate. i want to pass a balanced budget. i am not your usual politician. i'm not one of the good old boys pay ed i will make this tough decisions in the united states senate. i will roll up my sleeves, work hard for you, and i will fight for you. >> now the opening statement from bob kerrey. >> thank you. i love nebraska. i always have and i always will. i was born here in lincoln. i left nebraska and went to war and came home, and i recovered from illness in the lincoln. i started a business that employed more than 700 people. i served as your governor, balancing our budget, and i left after four years and went back to business. i served as your son that -- as your senator, and again we balance our budget. i am a candidate for congress for the senate because congress needs to change, and i will fight to make that happen. i have never had and never will be a cookie cutter politician. i never have and never will be anything other than someone who
assistance today, we will be able to take a broad look at how the arab world is looking at the united states and the u.s. public is looking at the arab world as the arab awakening continues to create a very uncertain and very fast changing environment. so, i am grateful to all of you for coming and look forward to our discussion and at this point i would like to invite shibley telhami to the podium to present the poll. >> thanks a lot, tammie. it's always great to be here. i'm going to just present not the whole thing but some of the findings so we can get on with the conversation i will present a highlight. i just want to give you a little bit of a picture about this particular poll. it was conducted by knowledge networks sample of 737 that is designed to be a national representative in an internet panel. the methodology is described in the information that we will put all and is also available online. i also want to say that it's really my pleasure and honor to partner to the sinnott program at the university of maryland, and a program for policy international policy attitudes and particul
. a lot of people i've heard about the trade conflict between the united states and china on solar panels. this is an interesting prism to view the chinese economy more broadly because this is a classic case of china really pushing hard for big innovation and winding up with little innovation that doesn't get them to where they want to go and part of china's innovation policy is targeting strategic emerging industries. these are the industries that beijing thinks will be the industry's of the future. the biggest is green energy including solar and wind and electric vehicles and other green energy technologies so they have unleashed a lot of funding to support grain energy innovation. most of that funding has created instead of mosul products continuing the same old model process innovation which is making the products created in the west faster and cheaper and therefore using that to take away some of the u.s. market share. they've been very successful doing that on solar energy. china is making solar panels at lower prices than other countries around the world and therefore they are subs
tells well. the time i served in the united states senate i've been an independent voice for the people in the state and i've gotten results from the people of the state. in this campaign today, seven newspapers have made an editorial the as to who they would endorse. and all seven endorsed my candidacy. one of the reasons, not the only but one of the reasons that those newspapers endorsed me from the spread to california and a lot of places in between because of my record and the results that i achieved for the people in the state either leading the fight to cut the payroll tax for millions of americans and in pennsylvania so they could of dollars in the pocket to be doubled to invest in the economy, trade adjustment when the workers lose their jobs because of the unfair foreign competition and i let the fight pass that legislation given the training they need to get back on their feet. the so-called dredging plastic the deepening of the channels on was the key player in getting the most recent funding for that so getting results is key for the economy, and i have the honor to have ser
for the passport. can you imagine the canadian government coming to the united states congress and asking us for blank passports? domeback. he's dealing with every level from the white house, jimmy carter, who actually approved, tony had one foot out the door in germany and a cable came into his head stop, president is reviewing. 20 minutes later, godspeed, good luck, from the president of the united states. this is unprecedented. because as he said, if this didn't a wealthy american flag was going to be draped all over it. so he's working with the canadians, working wit with a we us, working with the cia bureaucracy, and is working with the state department. and it's difficult to get everybody on the same page with the idea that they are calling the best bad idea they could come up with. he did all that. but beyond that he went and walked them through the airport on his own, which wasn't necessarily in the plan, and our headquarters often tells us don't do that. don't go in the airport with them. if it goes wrong, they will look to you. without even thinking about it they will turn and look
for the united states senate? >> i'm run ling for the same reason i wanted to represent molakai when i was 27 years old. on the counsel making life better for seniors meant fix it is drinking fountain and installing ceiling fans. as mayor it meant capping taxes so people could afford to stay in their home even when property value skyrocketed. as governor it meant creating a robotics program so twins at a high school would major in engineering. as senator making life better means protecting social security and medicare for future generations. we have to cannot to invest in healthcare, education, national security and infrastructure while working to regain our financial strength as a nation. two years ago i was invited to be a founding member of a governor's counsel at the bipartisan policy center washington where i worked with former republican and democrat governors on issues important to the state and nation. unlike my opponent i have a track record of working in a bipartisan fashion to make life better for the people of hawaii. i ask for your vote so i can continue my work as hawaii's next
. thinking has been around for several hundred years. under the united states constitution the ability to create money as part of the united states prompted the united states constitution. forever 200 years a lot of that has been outsourced to the private-sector, today least 90% of our money supply so to speak is produced by the commercial banking industry. i am not even mentioning some of the other parts of the financial services industry. for the last nearly 100 years, the fed has been involved and not outsourcing. and the lender of last resort is there to support the banking industry. and for the last 75 plus years we have the fdic providing another part of the federal safety net, to make the banking industry the commercial banking industry much more robust. so to me this is all about the safety net. but it is also time to roll back the safety net, because when we think about the money supply, what we used to pay for things, that is where we have the safety net here. it also need to recognize the the united states dollar is holding be fed currency of the world. many of our transacti
. obviously, the campaign is for the united states senate. the filibuster has been used in this current united states senate all a long. hasn't been accused? >> i think every party will always see the other party abuses. i like the system. i like the requirement because to get 60 votes. requires working across the aisle. i think that's something i'm well-suited for. so i would not vote to get rid of the filibuster. sometimes it is abused by both parties. >> from 1917-1970, 50 cloture vote. this current senate, 109th cloture vote. what is going on? >> you have a dysfunctional senate. we haven't had a budget passed innocent in more than three years but someone mentioned the other day the last time the senate passed the budget, the apple ipad had not been invented yet. >> how can it be functional is the filibuster is always wearing its had? >> they can. we've had the filibuster for years and with a functional senate. as senator mccain said the other day this is the first time in 51 years that the senate hasn't passed a defense authorization bill. the problem right now, i don't think we will convi
. judgment is what we look for in the president of the united states of america. >> you can see more from this foreign-policy debate for the 2004 campaign later tonight along with other debates from our archives. watch the 84 debate between ronald reagan and walter mondale. from 1988, george bush and massachusetts gov. michael dukakis. that is all starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. >> the candidates are heidi heitkamp and rick berg. this is a little less than one half hour. >> welcome to the continuing coverage of election 2012. this is the debate where north seat.a is a u.s. senate sen i am here with berg and heidi heitkamp. thank you so much for being here. both candidates will have a bottom in the closing statement. there will be topics as i mean where there will be discussion and debate. >> thank you. i would like to thank everyone watching. this election may be the most important election in our lifetime. if we did i get our country back on track on the road to growth and prosperity, my children will not inherit the same country we do. i will fight against barack obama's f
worldwide of the united states military? two minutes, virgil goode. >> as i said, if i'm elected president i will balance the budget, and part of the cuts have to be in the department of defense. we cannot do as mitt romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building. [applause] >> the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, that we're borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. in promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the ye
for united states citizens first. >> as double of the mexico i ran a completely out of the political system, i got elected republican governor and state that was 2-1 democrat and made a name for myself of vetoing legislation. i'd be done more legislation than the other 49 governors in the country combined. i b to add 750 bills, and thousands of line item vetoes, it made a difference when it can to billions of dollars worth of spending, it made a difference when it came to laws that would have told you are by what i could or couldn't do in the bedroom. host: here johnson reports that he will appear on the ballot in 48 states including some of battlegrounds. and in colorado, new hampshire and an ohio -- johnson could be a thorn in romney side if the election is close. and in virginia, virgil goode could be a problem for gov. romney in that state as well. here is more from a third-party presidential debate. with the other candidates. [video clip] >> there are 90 million voters who are not coming out to vote in this election. that is one out of every two of voters, twice as many as the number w
think that i am running for the united states senate because it is my job to make sure that future generations that are coming up behind me have the same opportunities my family had. >> senator heller. >> i want to thank pbs, sponsors, and my opponent for being here this evening. i grew up with five brothers and sisters, and i raised four children of my own. i learned that an early stage it is more important to listen than it is to talk. that is what i have done. there are concerns about staying in their homes and keeping their jobs. senior citizens are worried about health care and about if the doctor is even going to accept medicare and the future. they are worried about this fiscal cliff. there are real issues with real people. i believe i will supply those real solutions. the result may be different, but i want to change the dialogue of this particular debate, a challenge for myself and my opponent for us to discuss these issues. we treat voters like adults. if we can do that, i think we will increase the dialogue here, and i think that is what nevada deserves. >> you have the
with the demonstrations themselves. but from their point of view, and this is, this is the dilemma from the united states too, this is the dilemma from the united states, you know, iran has exploited situations before. it has exploited situations before. there's the fear that it could exploit this one again, and that is why when we look, we do not know what to make of this group and where it stands on questions of democracy and participation and where it stands in its relationships with iran. we don't -- we have concerns about that. that are hampering our decision making. is there any other question? it's 12:00, we really need to close because of the cameras. so i guess i will say at this point thank you very much for coming. thank you to the panelists. [applause] and, again, we have a web site, www.mepc.org. i hope you visit it. [inaudible conversations] >> the middle east council wrapping up this discussion on foreign policy choices facing the next administration. we are going from this to the heritage foundation live now for a discussion on russia's role in the syrian civil war. this is just getting s
poverty which is one-fifth of what the united states does. and they have that rate because they have serious social welfare state, a serious social welfare network. and before we talk about moving more away from that and more towards giving a greater role to the market in our society, we need too seriously address what is clearly one, not the only, but one very important component of why finland outperforms the united states on educational measures. >> so, i will say when i came back from a trip to finland people want to have school in evanston, they should probably move to finland because it is quite a different social contact that they have created there. so i don't actually, we speak in the education debate, i was not making it, to make clear, i think in general society, this is a huge problem and how think about this and talk about it. but within education i think there's great deal of attention to poverty. they are serve has been this morning. i think on all sides, dislike debate is a lot more common ground about poverty than you would know from the rhetoric. >> quick last word
and a little brother who currently is serving in the united states navy. there are lots of guys in my family that our military so i have a strong record of supporting military families and records. i'm the only candidate here this evening who has a record on luke air force base. i voted eight times to preserved luke air force base. >> did you ever advocate to close the air force base? >> in 2002, when i ran for the legislature as an independent, i was from a republican party so it took me awhile to become a democrat. when i was younger, based on the information i had told, the was a good idea but my brothers taught me the most and toward -- important thing we could do is to keep those jobs open and that's why it passed legislation to protect military families and veterans throughout this state. >> seriously, this is how you reduce the debt we are in is keeping an air force base open? comeon? how the jobs into this state? jobs are created when businesses have surplus money and needs. with the federal government ribbon of businesses, with high taxes, you have to go in there and gut that. we sh
want to reward small businesses and manufacturers who are creating jobs right here in the united states of america. [cheers and applause] second, my plan will cut our oil imports in half by 2020 so we control more of our own energy here in america. megyn: and here's a look at why the president stayed in florida after last night's debate in boca raton. the latest polling average from realclearpolitics.com that averages all the polls shows romney leading among likely voters with nearly 48.5% and the president averaging around 46.5%. if you look at the more recent polling, it looks very much in governor romney's favor. we've told you earlier that suffolk polling pulled out a while back saying they don't believe that's competitive any longer although clearly team obama disagrees with that. critical state, as you know, in this election. governor romney, meantime, now working to shore up support in the nevada with paul ryan. the pair set to appear in henderson together just about a couple of hours from now. nevada is another battleground this year, and you can see why the governor is there. t
basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the court is taking the right number? >> the truth is, i do not know if it is unlikely, for this rea
rush-hour number one enemy." #3, it angers and alienates the united states. and increasingly irritates turkey. why is russia doing this? there is continued disunity in the ranks of the rebels, although after this morning, there's another chance they say to reunify. hopefully, scout, think they won't be able to oust assad. turkey has not been willing to extend their anti-syrian rhetoric. however, the turkish prime minister is quite had strong. if he continues to be provoked by syrian shelling, he may take action. this is why in recent days, following the shelling, forcing down a jet flying to damascus, russia is trying to ply the situation and by increasing the supply of natural gas to turkey, making up for a short fly to iran to maintain good relations between russia and turkey despite what is happening in syria. in conclusion, moscow is taking a major middle east gamble with its policy in syria. if the gamble fails, and i think it will, hopefully if the u.s. get a little more active in the process, moscow's middle east policy will be in deep trouble. thank you. >> thank you very much.
as president of the united states. [applause] crowd: four more years! >> you know, over the last four years, i have seen a lot of folks hurt. i have seen a lot of struggle. and i am not going to make -- i am not going to have us go back to another round of top-down economics. but that is what my opponent is offering. the centerpiece of governor plan, favorsomic the wealthiest americans. he has been pitching the plan an entire year. he stood up on stage in a primary debate and proudly declared his tax cuts would include the top 1%. most of the economists that crunched the numbers said paying for the tax plan either means blowing up the deficit or raising taxes on middle-class families. one or the other. pick your poison. last week, mitt romney said, there is no addition to the deficit with my tax plan. if he says it is not true, then it is not true. ok. it is true that it is not going to add to the deficit, that leaves only one option. that is asking middle-class families to foot the bill by getting rid of the deductions for owning a home, raising kids, or sending them to college. as it turned
paul ryan and i will become the next president and vice president of the united states. [applause] we take america to two very different places and that is clear by virtue of what you have heard over the last two debates and you will hear over the last one as well. the president will put an america in place that has about $20 trillion in debt, killing the american dream for your kids. if i become president, i will take the action to make sure we kept our federal spending, we limit federal spending as a percentage of our total economy, and we finally get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] if president obama were reelected, is spending plan and is borrowing and the death of that borrowing will cost -- cause not only high income people pyrotechnical small but, you will see middle income people in this country facing $4,000 more in taxes. when i become president of the united states, i will lower taxes for the middle-class and on small businesses who need a real break. [applause] he made it clear as well in the last couple debates that he is reelected, we will have obama ca
capital was allocated. the united states thought it out years ago to the extent we had anything and gradually developed the leverage ratio. and with much fighting, tleverae ratio was kept in the united states with bassle one and two at a quite low level. the feeling in the united states, i think i can say, is yes, you ought to have a leverage ratio and it ought to be higher than what they're talking about in bassle, significantly higher than what they're talking about in bassle. but i don't know whether that will ever be agreed in bassle but yes, i think that may be more important than the risk-based standard. i mean this is the way you get at the fact that some important risks are not covered at all by bassle. now the difficulty with it is, is we used to have it that way. they said okay, we got one capital standard for the whole bank we're not going to buy -- in american terms we're not going to buy government securities anymore because we just want to hold things that are more profitable. we don't want to allocate 5% capital against government securities. and whatever you're d
in the solar panels to the united states. to u.s. citizens have cleaner air but we do not. that's a really big problem. that's an old model. the old model. the new model would be if they cannot only create the manufacturing solar panel but also creating new innovative types of technology that might be way more efficient than what we have to. but also in staunton and consumed by an adult. that is very, very difficult to do because that requires central government to break past some very powerful state owned on ane interest, including coal country, power generation companies and state creates. the state grid corporation controls china's national utility grid. they can do 80% of the chinese territory. they have been really dragging their heels connecting wind and solar resources to the great. so getting that side of equation right is going to really critical going forward, but very, very difficult to do. and so that raises the question of whether this new leadership is really going to be able to get things done, we don't know the full politburo standing committee. we do come in now the top three
daschle, know what i respected more at all the years -- all the years i worked in the united states senate, and tim, your courage, you have such incredible courage and character. [applause] stephanie, thank you for helping hunter get through georgetown. [laughter] you really screwed him up. he went to yale. it bothered me a lot. hildi -- it is good to see you, old buddy. you are still punching. thank you for the help. 1980 was a tough year. a real tough year. in 1980, we lost gaylord nelson, we lost george mcgovern, we lost the heart, soul, and spine of the united states senate i have joined. the speech you heard george giving, i remember like you do, but maybe from a different perspective. i was a 29-year-old kid. i was a senate nominee from the state of delaware. at my first convention. sitting there, mesmerized by the man who was speaking. much too late in the night, but speaking. i ran with your father in 1972. when i was elected -- i was not old enough to serve. i got elected when i was 29. i had to wait to be eligible to be sworn in. i not only served with your father in the senate f
have it tammy baldwin running for the united states senate here and wisconsin. i believe she is also what we call the house of representatives, did she give up her thing and there as the house of representatives when she ran? i am not sure. but i want to say, i am really -- you talk about medicare. when they took away $716 billion of medicare, that scares me. also, how can you broach or stand up for, i am sorry, but our president. and in benghazi, when that whole group allied for weeks on what happened. -- when the whole group lied. when the new two hours later the truth. i am sorry for you, sir. and you talk about spending money, about a recall, $13 million before the recall. ridiculous. thank you. guest: there's a lot going on and that col. let us see what i can do to address it. tammy baldwin is representing the district since 1998. she did give up her seat to run for the united states senate. the democrat is one to the next member of congress. and reference to the $716 billion, that was money that was allocated to actually defray costs and make medicare solvent for a little longe
better. >> hos wel if look at cyberace the united states rinow, how wouldou debe surityverall? much as we would deribe, maybe, crime or break-ins in a neighborhood? >> guest: well in the spirit of the explanatory mission we have, you can't really talk about cyberspace in the united states. a computer user in washington, d.c. or in wichita or san francisco is effectively working shoulder to shoulder with a computer user in beijing or in moscow. there's literally no seconds of difference in space and time in cyberspace. so i thought i'd point that out. as for the security, the reality is that, um, it's almost remarkable how vulnerabl comp sysms are. and cyberspace, um, is not what most people think it is. most people now equate cyberspace with the bear net. -- internet. but if they want to think about what cyberspace is, it's the gps system on the new cars, it's the iphone and the droids, it's jet fighters and jet planes. anything that is driven by computers, excuse me, by computer code and is linked to networks, um, can be a part of cyberspace. and the vulnerabilities are, um, almo s
in the united states. not just montana. they are competing with other emerging economies across the planet. we have to invest in our cells. -- in ourselves. i was astonished knowing the importance of a quality education when my opponent voted to slash grants and voted to increase the interest payments on student loans. that is how i went to school. that is how thousands of nevada at middle income families go to school. they depend on it. my opponent voted to slash. and he in -- he voted to double. as far as the department of education is concerned, at the lincoln county dinner, he very clearly said it is exactly what he would do, eliminate the department of education. it was picked up by "the times." >> thank you. >> that is not accurate but that is fine. i am not surprised she will continue with that. my opponent in 2010 voted against the loan program. it helped generations of americans get their education. she has to be careful with what she said. my wife is a schoolteacher. she taught school and works within school districts. she understands the importance of parents, teachers, and principl
between china and the united states would be a disaster for both countries. and it would be in possible to describe what a victory would look like. and it requires, on both sides, patience and understanding above all, that they are trying to reach in each country domestic pressures that emphasize disagreements that might arise. we see that in our political campaign in which both campaigns are using language about china, which i think is extremely deplorable. and you see it in the chinese literature, from their strategic channels come in which their strategic analysts are pushing a very nationalistic line. and, indeed, as tradition of time is ideology diminishes, it is the prospect that nationalism becomes a substitute. many of the issues that arise, of a past, need to overcome a so-called dotted line and the south china sea that was done by south chinese emperor who had never heard of law of the seas because that concept didn't exist many years ago. so the issue of the islands, and there are hundreds of islands, requires in my view first of all separating the notion of freedom of the se
question. a few days after our presidential election here in the united states, china will be transitioning to a new leadership. the new generation of leaders will guide china probably through the next decade. if given a second term to how does president obama see the opportunities in the transition? what measures with the president propose to take the new heads of state relationship? >> well, president obama reached out to hu jintao right after president obama was elected. and right after he took office. he's met with hu jintao more than any previous president had met with a counterpart. they have met something upwards of a dozen times. many phone calls. i'm sure that this pattern will continue with the next chinese leadership. the chinese haven't done us a favor yet of telling us who will be in the new leadership. that will be announced on november 8. i think we're all confident we know that the general secretary of the congress party will be xi jinping. will have a pretty good idea of at least four members of the politburo standing committee, and perhaps other members. i think, the impor
, they say potentially devastating the northeast united states. how bad will it actually be? we have the latest forecast. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now only eleven days -- we're now only eleven days from the president election, and nowhere is the campaign battle being waged more fiercely than in the battleground state of ohio. 18 electoral votes are at stake there. president obama took them in 2008. our brand new cnn/orc poll is just coming in and it shows president obama leading in ohio right now 50% to mitt romney's 46%. but that's within the sampling error. it's a statistical tie in other words. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us. john, break down the numbers for us. no state right now is more important than ohio. >> you can make that case. no state is more important than ohio. you mention it's within the margin of error but yet another poll showing the president with a small lead in ohio. he's had that pretty much across the general election season. what's driving it right now? in a battleground state like
. the united states has the worst rate of industrialized nations of women dying in connection with pregnancy and childbirth. under obama care there will be 30 million people without essential health care by the year 2022. and during the bush and the obama years our constitution has been shredded while the impeerl presidency -- the imperial presidency expanded. the presidents that think they can take us to war on a pack of lies. with presidents that think federal government should have the authority to round anyone up, including u.s. citizens, and imprison them without charges, without trial, without legal representation, and without the right ofwe do '. habeous corpus. and our elected officials are sound asleep when the pentagon is warning that climate change is a greater long-term security risk to the united states than terrorism. so if you like the way things are going, vote democratic or republican. if you want real change, vote your conscience, vote justice. economic justice, social justice, environmental justice. [cheers and applause] >> back to our opening statement from virgil goode.
. we'll speak with the former attorney general of the united states michael mukasey about whether the president needs to say something about this attack. it's one of the most heartbreaking images in sandy's aftermath. 100 homes lost in and i inferno in queens. we'll talk to someone who saw his family home go up in flames just ahead. megyn: fox news alert. we are waiting to hear from president obama getting his first look at disaster zone that is the jersey shore in the wake of hurricane sandy. a brand-new hour of "america live." welcome, i'm megyn kelly. the president joining new jersey governor chris christie on a helicopter tour of the devastation. this will be the president's first look. focusing the attention on the area where the storm made landfall it's one thing to see the destruction on television and another to see it in person. governor christie * giving an emotional press conference saying how it was tough for him to take in the sights and sounds of the state where he grew up. the mayor of new york city, mike bloomberg told president obama to please not come to new york
for the election of united states senators by united states legislature. we got rid of that in 1913 with the 17th amendment. it worked pretty well. most citizens today would find it bizarre not to be able to directly elect their senators. it is even more important to do that in terms of electing a president. i think we got it in reverse. at the 17th amendment was correct. what we should have started as to whether direct election of the president. represent all of america. host: falls church, virginia. on our line for republicans. caller: i happen to agree with the senator. i think the electoral college gives protection to the modern state. i hear your point, too. and there's a concern there. one. have always had, and i never hear anyone talk about this. has there ever any been studies or thoughts about -- i do not know about doing it by county, if you have a state like florida were different counties but different ways, at least your vote doesn't get completely thrown out. and maybe there is more fairer presentation that way. he could speak to that i would appreciate that. host: she was talking a
of the united states in the arab world, he will -- whoever will win will have to face a totally different wornd world. that policy is different today. you have to face government that were elected and are in power and they don't have to have the same interests. he have to convince them and collaborate and partner with them on shaping their realities closest we can to our views. i'm sorry to say that. president obama will come with his achievements, killing bin laden, hammering al qaeda, actually trying to endorse palestinian and israeli peace process that he couldn't do because of the factors of what's going on on the ground and many other things. what romney will come with is a bunch of insults towards these countries that alienate them before he's in office. even with china. how can he talk to the number two economy in the world, the number one holder of u.s. debt and the country giving loans to emerging markets more than the world bank. how can he talk to them before you're in office in those terms? how do you think they will do? >> a really good point. in the mideast we're dealing with demo
. if you don't get that from you do not belong in the united states. the president obama responded that way, if you respond in that way, he has good reasons to respond in a way. >> we have any questions? >> [inaudible question] >> go ahead, sir. >> speaking of the senate, we have five senate seats. four leading republican seats on either side of that. give us your perspective. republicans were favored to win control of the u.s. senate. olympia snowe retired. then you had todd akin with his infamous comments in missouri, and right now, the democrats are favored to retain control. the republicans would have to win to get control of the senate. if it was between scott brown and elizabeth warren, they would pick scott brown. the choice is between democrats controlling the senate and public's controlling the senate, that is a no-brainer in massachusetts. it is likely that scott brown will be defeated. in connecticut, she was ahead in the polls this summer. trailing in the last couple. i think that is a very tough race. the great state of indiana may also be going to a shakeup because of comments
of the united states military? two minutes, virgil goode. >> as i said, if i'm elected president i will balance the budget, and part of the cuts have to be in the department of defense. we cannot do as mitt romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building. [applause] >> the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, that we're borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. in promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013, that

[applause] >> thank you. in 1962, 50 years ago, mike published "poverty in the united states." at the time the american economy was in the golden age of economic prosperity. a rising tide was lifting all boats. the economy had grown rapidly. the wages of most workers have been growing faster than the rate of theinflation. almost no one talked about poverty. book not only change the discourse but the public policy landscape. he wrote "there is a familiar america that has the highest standard of living the world has ever known. that is not change the fact that tens of millions of americans are at this very moment existing at levels of been need those necessary for human decency." a short time later. the article appeared in the new yorker called "our invisible port." they said "the extent of our poverty has suddenly become visible." it is said that walter heller gate kennedy both the book and the new yorker review. most people and he read only the review. he did tell carrington to begin to put together some proposals to reduce poverty. last chapters he wrote "there is no point to tell the ins
. that is what the country is for. that is why i am running for president of the united states, and that is why i want your vote. >> four more years! >> what i talked about last not was a new economic patriotism, a patriotism based on the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle- class. that means we export more products and we outsourced and fewer jobs. in the last three years we came together to reinvent a dying auto industry that is back on top of the world. we have created more than 500,000 new manufacturing jobs, so now you have a choice. we closed tax breaks, and we reward companies that create jobs in the united states. that is what we are looking for. we can help small business double their exports and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs buil
